I remember the first time I ever typed “haha” on AOL Instant Messenger.
It felt ridiculous.
I’ve always prefered to use proper grammer in any chat medium I’ve used, mostly so that I stay in the habit of writing the correct way, and also because many of the abbreviations and/or acronyms are ridiculous and absurd.
My most serious offense is the fact that I rarely capitalize when I’m chatting.
Laughing out loud.
Rolling on the floor laughing.
What the fuck.
Read the fucking manual.
The one I hate the most is “lol.” I had an ex-boyfriend once who “accidentally” said it out loud. Needless to say, that relationship lasted a mere two months.
“Haha” is as far as I will go to express my laughter, even when I do actually laugh out loud.
